Okay… so maybe we’re not really ready for a heap of homework yet, but at least we can prepare ourselves for what’s to come. This desk and chair combo is ready to help someone get organized. I love the little cubbies and the book shelf underneath.
The desk was painted, waxed and distressed in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I had worked on the chair a couple years ago when I was doing garden chairs. I sanded forever it seems trying to remove the original paint, but just couldn’t get anywhere with it. The chair is solid and I liked the lines of it, so I just set it aside till now. I layered in a little Annie Sloan paint and wax to the already heavily distressed surface and viola – a perfect match!
The top of the desk is covered with several vintage inspired blue and green papers adding even more personality to an already spunky piece. I sealed it with several coats of poly for a solid bond.

a hui hou!
